Not sure how it got on my profile, but I was born in 1948, not 1946. . . . .at this point in life, I don't need to be two years older than I actually am!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUTCH!! It happens once a year at least on this planet. On other planets 1 would have a bday several times a year and others it might be centuries between bdays but heck you know all that!!

Anyway, you are now another year older for over an hour in EST.

Do you remember the tree that we harvested from that row of cedars? Then sometime that week the group shot of our fellow classmen around the tree. We were all such strapping young men.

I sure had many wonderful days on campus. Don't think I would change a day. I'm 70 and I feel in my teens or maybe 20ish then the next minute - BOINK!!- 70!! Then to think when we were in college the thought of grandkids much less marriage. YIKES!!

Had many great times at Margie's and Rosie's apartment in ICT post SMOP days. We hung around with some fantastic people way back when. Look whom we ended up with!! We both got a good deal.

Looks like Christmas and the week will be VERY cold however northern KS are getting snow but not here. Truly an unwhite Christmas will happen here. Looks like in your neck of the woods- SNOW??

In July my high school class of '66 is having another reunion to celebrate our 70 years on this 3rd rock from the sun. So in late July we plan on heading back to NY. Hope I'm up to it. People want a couple of recordings I made back then. I've transferred those recordings to digital land as I'm preparing to do the same to the various SMOP performances. It's a slow process but I/we will get it done.I still owe pics to Hank.

May Margie and you have a wonderful Christmas. Thought we were never going to get the cards out but I had to get 1 more pic. Thanks for your card. Hope you can read my writing. Things changed after my heart surgery. Oh well..."Life goes on..."

Again Happy Bday, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year 2018!!

Love and Peace,
Super and Ellen

There was another one you might remember. . . .we caught Moon coming out of the shower, hog tied him to a tent pole, carried him down to the second floor and left him lying on the outside deck. Fortunately for him, we took pity on him and carried him out of there before anyone saw him.
If someone did that today they would probably be facing criminal charges!
Have a very nice Thanksgiving, Tony!

Weren't we insane guys. I'm sitting on the couch watching Colbert with our oldest grandkid and a frosh in college and telling her tales of the Blue Max and related tales. College brought together a bunch of nuts and musicians/actors.

I'm VERY slowly prepping to transfer the open reel tapes I made in college of the various performances into a digital format.I have pretty well finished my high school audio.Man,we are so spoiled with todays technologies.

We are prepping for the trip into ICT on WED.Staying a couple of days at our sons' house(Daniel/Jacob) and "dropping" Mackaillyn at her house. As for the prep stuff, Ellen's baking cheese cake. I started 3 days ago 11 qt. of onion soup. Jacob is smoking 2 turkeys and a 20+lb. of ham. The other kids are making various yummies. Hope fully not the potatoes whipped together with enough salt that would've made the Dead Sea taste like soft water!! Ah, fun times!!

May you guys have a fantastic Thanksgiving!!
Peace,
Super & Ellen

Hey Super,
Just saw on the news that Charles Manson croaked, and I remembered when we were back in Kennedy Hall, I cut a picture of Manson's face from the cover of Life Magazine, and put it on a dummy that I hung in Charlie Bibbs' closet. When he opened his closet door, it freaked him out so bad he had to sit down.
Good times! Hope you, Ellen and family are well, Have a great Thanksgiving.

Hey Super, Happy Birthday! Here's hoping you have a great day and year to follow. Stay cool, I see from the weather map that it is unseasonably warm right now (which means you will have to eat your birthday ice cream before it melts!)
Give Ellen a hug for us, and enjoy the day with family and friends to help you celebrate.

Hi Super, good to hear from you. We had a normal winter here, kept the snowblower busy plus I put a plow blade on the ATV. There is only one snow drift left on the side of the garage, everything else has finally melted. Don't feel too bad about your guitar. . . .it's probably been 15 years since I even picked one up! May get back to it one of these days.
Enjoy your new garage. . . . .mine is long overdue for a good cleaning!

Take care, give Ellen a big hug for us!

Hey Butch and Margie, How's life treating you guys?? Did you have much snow this past Winter? We had ONE snow way back in November. We were drier than beef jerky. However in the past few weeks we are soggy. Old DCity has broken moisture records. Ought to have a bumper wheat crop but the market not worth a hoot.

Good to see that Smitty has picked up his trumpet again. I wish I could pick up my guitar and play it with ease but post surgery and neuropathy make fingering rather difficult. It kills me a couple of years ago I had a new pick guard and strings put on the old Martin. Sounds better than it did in college.

We had a massive 3 car garage/shop/storage built with the final touches done today. Our son Jacob wired it in 2 sessions finishing it up on Easter. Then he and his brother, Daniel, moved in the REAL BIG stuff. To think what they can do I once was able to do. Oh, Father Time, what you do to all of us. We continue to move "stuff" and boy does it kill me.

May you and your bride have a wonderful spring. Take care roomy and Margie, the apartment that you lived in ICT is still there.

Peace/Love,
Super and Ellen

HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY, Butch!! I remembered sometime in the 4 o'clock hour this morning that I had missed your birthday. Shame on me. Guess I need a flogging.

Sure hope you guys had a Merry Christmas. It was spring like here. Like it was in the 50's and 60's. 1 tornado reported in Rush County. Weird.

3 of our sons came out for a meal of smoked ham cooked in Ellen's Traeger. It was only the 2nd time she's used it after winning it at the farmers COOP Annual meeting in May. We had a good time and were entertained with Noah's 2 labs and Daniel's mutt.

Have a good winter and easy with the shoveling. Make sure he behaves himself Marge. Give each other a hug and also have a HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!!

Peace/Love you guys,
Super and Ellen
